One of only 31 built for the street and only seven sent to Shelby American for retail, this 1966 Ford GT40 is a stunning example of the mid-century racer. The car was used as a daily driver early in its life, before GT40 restoration expert Robert Ash bought it in 1984. It then saw a complete restoration, from the exhaust and carburetors down to the factory-issued hoses and wires. It’s been in the hands of its current owner since 1991, and recently had its original 400+ hp V8 engine rebuilt, ensuring it will remain roadworthy for years to come. It arrives in its original red livery with an all-black interior.
